The most uncompromising crossing of the Nagelfluh chain. Sixteen summits in one day - without lift. Only for very fit hikers who know what they are getting involved with.

The popular crossing of the Nagelfluh chain can be tackled at various levels of difficulty. However, the normal total crossing otherwise ends or begins with a lift ride at noon. Not here! On this relentless tour there are no aids, only the 16 peaks of the Nagelfluh chain that want to be conquered. If the legs don't want to go any further at some point and a new one appears after each conquered mountain, it becomes a matter of the mind that decides about triumph or failure.

Question from Sigrun Baum  · November 30, 2019 · Community
Kommentar: Wenn man nach Hittisau absteigt, kann man mit dem ÖPNV nach Oberstaufen fahren. Wochentags gibt es um 15:20 und um 17:20 eine Möglichkeit ab der Haltestelle Häleisen, das ist in der Nähe vom Schwimmbad. (Ich garantiere nicht, dass die Uhrzeit noch stimmt.)
